I guess that the best choice is a standarised DPMI 1.1 Multi-cores, Multi-thread extension,

Multi-cores should be very useful for a modern graphic library,
For example, I can split the video screen in two. then I make two instances of DUGL, each one render on it's half screen using a separated CPU core. This mean that we can render twice faster than a single core !
I can for example do all 3D transformation inside a CPU core, and do the rendering using another CPU core.
